VistaHide Battery Gauge 1.1.1

- Default height is now 3 pixels instead of 4. I just find it nicer that way :)
- Added missing code needed to handle correctly screen rotation, and it is now working in version 1.1.1.
- Implemented code to make it work with the Smartphone edition. It is partly working. The bar appears at the top on every screen, except the home screen (in the emulator at least). Of course, if this is not a bug in the emulator, this makes it nearly useless (I think). Ideas anyone ?

If anyone uses this on a Smartphone, again, please report if it works as emulated.

See this thread for more information.


Hope you enjoy.

I just tested it and it does not handle the rotation on my Wizard (8125)

EDIT: I feel kinda dumb now. I found out that you can rotate the screen in the Settings -> Screen panel. Duh! I could now actually test it, and found the bug. Sorry!

It should be fixed in version 1.1.1.

Thank you for testing!

Since I just saw the source code for this, I will implement it correctly for Smartphone in the next version. I will have time for this on Monday.

So this battery bar acts just like the battery bar from SPB Pocket Plus??

Running the exe file on my device will put the battery meter at the top of the screen? and if thats the case, for it to run when the device starts up, that means i would have to put a shortcut to it in the startup folder?

1. this program won't be able to be closed once launched. If it is launched when it is running, it will close the display, but the process still remains in memory.

2. Using task manager to close the process will kill the devices completely, only resetting can recover it.

need more work.

Do you mean Hard or Soft Reset??
Also, how much memory does it use when you viewed it in the task manager?

Just discovered this and it is very nice! It has now replaced the original (LVMTopBat) on my phone. I do like that it stretches full screen, which is one thing I wished LVMTopBat had. Good work!
